    New Hampshire November 3, 1775 40s Extremely Fine. A tiny part of two corner tips are missing, but far more important is the fact that this is a genuine 40 Shilling example from this issue. Although there has always been some question as to the authenticity of many of the notes that are condemned as counterfeits, it is very rare that a 40s of unquestioned authenticity appears on the market. This note bears the due date of December 20, 1780, and no counterfeit or "questionable" note of this issue carries that date. The note has a small stain at the upper right and some minor repaired edge splits, but it shows no circulation other than a center fold. An outstanding New Hampshire note.
